Senior Sessions Review - Matt Anderson, Soundclash Music e Zine
About a month and a half ago, I received an email from a guy calling himself Bryant Dunivan. I had actually been talking with this guy on a message board community for some time before I had received this email, but that isn't important. Dunivan had seen my ad for Soundclash and asked me if I could review his latest CD for him. Since I am always looking for content for this site, I agreed happily. But once I received his CD, I discovered something rather unique. The first track on this album kinda gets off to a slow start. In fact, most of the tracks are very repetitive. The only constant is the bass, for there isn't as much guitar and other instruments as I would like in an album. But thankfully most peoples tastes in music are very diverse... I'm just picky. The first track, oddly titled "Dot Dot Smiley Face" starts slow with a kinda repetitive bass-line... in fact, the baseline if the only thing in this, except for some rather colorful lyrics. The second song on the lineup is called "Half Spirit," another bass-driven song with colorful lyrics. As the tracks continue on this CD, they make the listener realize pretty much everything that's going on around them, in a kind of semi-hippyism that really amazes me. there is a cover of Sublime's acoustic ballad, "What I Got" which surprised me because I had never heard a cover of that song before, and it was kind of interesting to hear that wonderful melody from a different perspective. The wonderful bass-controlled music on this album continues through the other tracks, which hold names such as "in Discovery Of," "Mind Crush," and "Herbal Journey." Some people could argue that this album goes on too long, with too many bass-lines that sound the same... and that the trippyism wears off after the half of this album. I would tend to call those people either (A) Close Minded, or (B) Having Bad Taste. This album surprised me... leaped up from behind me and bit me in the ass. When Dunivan told me that "You have never heard anything like this before," he was right. When it comes down to scoring crunch-time I am going to have to give Bryant Dunivan's new album, The Senior Sessions a 3 and 1/2 out of 5 overall Soundclash Score. it's not often that I describe music that can surprise people like this album did. keep up the good work, Bryant
